The False Claims Act (FCA) continues to pose unique liability risks for healthcare providers and companies conducting business with the US Government. In 2016, nearly $5 billion FCA settlements and judgements was recovered by the Department of Justice, demonstrating its aggressive enforcement of the law. To avoid the risk of running afoul with FCA, it is critical that companies understand the latest developments in FCA enforcement, investigations and litigation. It will also help to establish a robust compliance program to deflect unwanted pitfalls.
This course offers a discussion of the recent developments in FCA, including the Trump administration's prosecution of FCA actions, increased civil penalties, implied false certification basis of liability and other significant issues. A panel of thought leaders and practitioners organized by The Knowledge Group will help the audience understand the impact of these developments to future FCA investigations and litigation. They will also offer practical guidance on how to avoid or minimize FCA exposure.
